I bought this item for my daughter's bedroom. She was very pleased with it aesthetically (as was I). The set has a very high-end look without the high-end price tag. Now, here's the caveat to that: because of the color, you have to be meticulously clean to maintain this set. The black draws lint like flies, and since we have a white cat (yikes) she is unfortunately no longer allowed in her room.We also noticed that the comforter produces a large amount of lintballs when it's washed in a home washing machine, but not so much when washed in a commercial washer (such as at a laundromat). But who wants to go to the laundromat every two weeks when you have a perfectly good washer at home.If you're not looking to keep it for a while, I'd recommend it just for the value price, but if not, go with something else; I don't regret buying it at all, just wish it didn't pill with lint so easily.
